Victim Services

Missouri has joined the ranks of many states by passing a constitutional amendment to provide victims of crime several rights.

The Prosecuting Attorney's Office will strive to ensure that victims are informed of their rights; and that all victims are treated with dignity, respect, courtesy and sensitivity.


The mission of the St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney's Office is the just, swift and effective prosecution of criminal behavior. Accomplishing that mission can prevent others from becoming victims of crime.

By enforcing your rights and by working together we can accomplish that mission. With your help we can send the right message: that criminal behavior is not tolerated.
